Accessing the Sector Summary

You can access the Sector Summary from either the Member Tools area of Your Dashboard, or the Summary Pages section of the Charts & Tools page.

Using the Sector Summary

Sector View

The Sector Summary page displays the 11 S&P Sector ETFs, ranked by performance over the selected period. The columns display the symbol, name, last price, change in price, volume, market cap, SCTR score, and the symbol's universe.

The following periods are supported:

  • Intraday (members only)

  • End-of-Day

  • One week

  • One month

  • Three months

  • Six months

  • One year

Note: John Murphy recommends starting with three months and adjusting up or down based on your trading style.

The menu on the left column of each row allows you to view the S&P Sector ETF as a SharpChart, ACP Chart, Gallery View, Point & Figure, Seasonality, or Options format.

The icons in the right column allow you to view the sector members in a MarketCarpet, PerfChart, or RRG chart. Note that some icons may not be available for sectors or industries with too many companies.

Industry View

You can click on the name of any sector in the Sector View to see all the Dow Jones Industry indexes associated with that sector. The industries are also ranked by performance over the selected period. The example below shows the industries in the Health Care sector.

Note: At the bottom of each Sector Summary page are links to the Complete Industry Summary page, Sector PerfChart, Sector CandleGlance, and Sector RRG.

Stock View

Lastly, you can click on the name of any industry to see the stocks that make up that industry index. The stocks are also ranked by performance over the selected period.
